Not as partison as the last review
Interesting clip, however I will not engage in partison party bashing and ideological lecturing which I noticed that someone has done in place of a review. The purpose of a review is to review the work at hand. Thank you vey much for contributing to this web archive database. I am sure many will agree with me that all perspectives are welcome on this server.

Remember when there were principled Republicans?
In my opinion Scott Ritter is, like Richard Clarke, like Ammbasabor Wilson, and like Cindy Sheehan, a true American Patriot.
I very much admire the consistancy of his position throughout the entire Iraqi debacle. The real shame is that more card carrying Rebublicans are not so principled.
Though I can imagine how difficult must it be to speak out against the very government itself when one is witness to injustices perpetrated by that government presumably in its citizens best interest. I cannot excuse the Republican Party which bears the greatest responsibility for oversight of the President's actions, since they currently hold near complete sway in the Congress, Senate, and Judicial Branches and yet have failed to demostrate a worthiness of such power by exercising any ethical restraits on policies persued by this administration.
Are Americans really expected to accept that the deceptions of the people by its government should be tolerated? What reason do Americans have to trust that this government has our best interests in mind when that government finds it necesary to lie to its people to gain support it can't by valid argument?
